Funny sounds, exciting game play, really addictive, one-finger controls
Benji Bananas Adventures for Android is a swingin’ good time. Laughter is universal, and this one is fun for gamers of all ages.
Benji Bananas Adventures is just downright entertaining. You’re a little baby monkey that’s just learning his way around the jungle. First lesson, is to learn how to swing from vine to vine. Just tap your finger to grab a vine, then tap again to let go; the key is timing. You want to build up enough momentum to fly through the air (with the greatest of ease) and grab onto the next vine. Travel a set distance with a predetermined number of swings to win the round. As the levels progress, the distances get farther and the swings really send your stomach into your throat.
There’s an interactive map depicting all the levels, and checkpoints where one skill has been mastered, and a new skill is added. The next series of rounds is about swinging and collecting bananas at the same time, and as you progress, new twists are added to keep the game interesting.
The graphics are fantastic to look at and really add to the enjoyment of the game. The sounds are comical, with an airy, sweet melody that adds to the playful environment. The whole game comes of very cheery and inviting. The animation renders very well and the whole experience is a top quality gamer’s game. The physics and sense of motion are excellent and really give the feel of swinging through air with grace and speed. This could easily be an arcade classic from yesteryear; very refined, fully developed and just a joy to play.
Benji Bananas Adventures is outstanding. I really didn't know what to expect from this one and I was pleasantly surprised. Kids will love the inviting graphics and simple play, while seasoned gamers will appreciate the attention to detail and evolving challenges. This one stands apart from the pack. Excellent game and execution in every respect.
